22-23 NCW Libraries Omak Digital Literacy Resource Navigator
 
 
 
NCW Libraries AmeriCorps member will serve the Intercounty Rural Library District residents of five counties in North Central Washington (Chelan, Douglas, Ferry, Grant, and Okanogan). The people served live in remote, low-income communities with poverty rates are well above the average both nationally and in Washington State and a median household income below $60,000. Over, half of the communities in our district have at least 20% of the local population that identifies as Hispanic/Latino. According to the Washington Student Achievement Council, high-speed internet access for students in the rural parts of the state are 55% in comparison to the almost 97% in King County. 86.7% of white students have access to internet at home compared to only 72% of Hispanic students. In households with incomes below $60,000, internet access drops below 81.5%. The digital divide negatively impacts folks in this region with limited access to internet and technology tools but is more than access to devices and reliable high-speed internet. Nearly one-third of workers in the United States lack digital skills, in local numbers, this means that approximately 92000 people within our service area lack the digital skills they need to be successful in the workplace. The AmeriCorps member will help provide learning opportunities for utilizing technology in daily life, as well that reskilling that allow people to advance in their careers. If you want to make a real difference in people's lives NCW Libraries is the place and program to make that positive impact.
